The Russians have sized up the moral bankruptcy of the Western Left. They know that half-a-million Europeans would turn out to damn their patron the
United States for removing a dictator and fostering democracy, but not more than a half-dozen would do the same to criticize their long-time enemy
from bombing a constitutional state.
The Russians rightly expect Westerners to turn on themselves, rather than Moscow — and they won’t be disappointed. Imagine the morally equivalent
fodder for liberal lament: We were unilateral in Iraq, so we can’t say Russia can’t do the same to Georgia. (As if removing a genocidal dictator
is the same as attacking a democracy). We accepted Kosovo’s independence, so why not Ossetia’s? (As if the recent history of Serbia is analogous
to Georgia’s.) We are still captive to neo-con fantasies about democracy, and so encouraged Georgia’s efforts that provoked the otherwise
reasonable Russians (As if the problem in Ossetia is our principled support for democracy rather than appeasement of Russian dictatorship).
From what the Russians learned of the Western reaction to Iraq, they expect their best apologists will be American politicians, pundits, professors,
and essayists — and once more they will not be disappointed. We are a culture, after all, that after damning Iraqi democracy as too violent, broke,
and disorganized, is now damning Iraqi democracy as too conniving, rich, and self-interested — the only common denominator being whatever we do, and
whomever we help, cannot be good.

My opinion?We should hit Russia.The time for debate is over about which govt system is best.
You can whine about the blogs right or left propaganda but the left have never ever had leadership when the bullies would come out to play on the
world stage.England knew this and when world war 2 started on sept 3 1939 England went with a Conservative Winston Churchill.Neville Chamberlains
piece of paper for "peace in our time" was just a cover for Hitler to launch his blitzkreig because he knew he was dealing with a weak,pathetic
leader in Chamberlain.
The russians are COUNTING on the western leftists to keep the democracies paralyzed from doing anything.
The same thing happened during Vietnam with the anti-war movement.Once we left Vietnam Southeast asia did fall to communist rule just like the pundits
at the time predicted.Laos, Cambodia,vietnam and Burma.Then the killings fields in Cambodia began.
Theodore Roosevelt(A republican) once said "speak softly but carry a big stick."He was right.
Also as per another poster on one of my other threads said,America will not fall to invasion,but will be destroyed from within by people claiming to
friends.I leave it to you to connect the dots.
